Gentleness, Intuituion and invitation 07/14/2010
If you look back at my historical blueprint of my health and fitness you would look up having a disgusted look on your face; at least I do.
Growing up our diet consisted of Spaghetti O's and Meatballs, pork chops with macaroni and home fries, hamburger helper, canned green beans and canned corn, Dr. Pepper, southern sweet tea, sugar water, fried potatoes and kit kats and butterfingers hidden in my grandmothers refrigerator.
I am strong believer and preacher, even that we are not a victim of our past. How we were brought up is merely a catalyst for who we want to become. There is so much to learn and gain from our past. But there also lies destruction if you choose to play the role of victim to your circumstances.
Well, sad to say that is exactly what I have been doing my whole life. Instead of taking charge and making choices that are in align with the body I want to have, I sit deep in the hole of starches and carbs that I grew up with. Most of what I put into my body does not actually serve me. Sure it keeps me from being hungry, but the food I eat does not work for me.
It is overwhelming to think about ALL the things I need to change about my diet. So I am taking it one day at a time.
Yesterday I borrowed a juicer from a friend, I have done 30 minutes to an hour of exercise for the past two days and continue to take it one day at a time. It is easier that way. If all I am thinking about is the minimum 20 minutes of exercise I need to put in today then I won't get overwhelmed by thinking how far I need to go.
I set my goal to be a size 10 by August 20. I am excited about that.
